9:07am
military would lead to calm x. bring more of a stability to the nation . we are hearing that the muslim brotherhood has great influence over the military as well >> people don't understand that things have changed in egypt. in the past you had mubarack and military that was western . now the brotherhood over the past year was to change the senior commanders of the military and so they are not independent anymore and can't take action . they do the united states and west will be against them . so what can the u.s. do at this point? >> it is important that the united states will work a dialogue between mr. morce yethe muslim brotherhood. we have done did in burma and many other places, why are we not recognizes a civil society uprise invite the leaders of
9:08am
the civil uprise mr. morce yemoderate between both. >> why is that not happening? >> i think the obama administration has a big bet on the muslim brotherhood and they feel that they are the own representative of the arab spring and now we see on the streets of cairo the arab spring is larger than the islamist. >> do you expect to see stability in the next few months? >> if we try to do a projection and look at what we are doing and not to do, it is sad to say we project more of the same as long as mr. morce yethe islamist has not understood that egypt needs a change. >> thank you for joining us with the insight. >> thank you. evidence that north korea may be ready to conduct a nuclear test. the site near the frevous nuclear test is showing signs
9:09am
of activity. it is difficult for officials to determine. roads are cleared of snow and the tunnel to the mountain side may be closed off. >> and preparing to take a break of worrythe world's hot spotsment secretary hillary clinton is leaving on a high note. they sat down for a unusual joint 60 minutes interview. a lot of the foreign country policy wins were due to mrs. clintton's hard work. >> i want to have a chance to say publicly thank you. she will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we have had. it is a great collaboration over the last four years, i am going to miss her. wish she was sticking around but she has logged in so many miles. i can't begrudge her to take it easy. >> her popularity remains
9:10am
high. >> she tops the most admired woman poll. the joint interview has some wondering if it is subtle endorsement of mrs. clinton to be mr. obama's successor. lawmakers were hoping that secretary clinton's testimony on the benghazi attacks would have provided hard evidence of how the tragedy happened. i sat down yesterday with senator john mccain and had a chance to question mrs. clinton. why didn't they push harder for more follow ups on important issues like what early warning measures were in place to address the security threat in the consulate? >> first of all, uma, you have a grand total of five minutes . i say this with some respect and little admireration. secretary clinton had been
9:11am
before the committees and long answers, they find more useful than short answers. i wanted to say that her answers were unsatisfactory and state many of the questions that were not answered and in hopes at leastt one of them i would get a satisfactory answer. i had to lay out our dissatisfaction with what she had said with not addressing the threats and the fact that a security group requesting to stay and felt they had to stay was with drown and on august 15t or 16th a report was sent out to the state department saying they could not with dispand the consulate could not with stand a sustained attack on the consulate and those questions were not worried and then on the talking points, in particular her answer to senator johnson saying no body cares.
9:12am
of course they care. the families care and everybody cares, what led to this tragedy and loss of four brave americans? all i can say the system in order to give every member a chance to ask questions, you don't get into the back and forth as you do in other hearings. >> i know that was clearly frustrating for you as well do we have an answer at this point as to why ambassador stephens was there and determined to open a u.s. consulate in such a dangerous territory when we had information that other terrorist groups were spending time in the region? >> and you notice today that the other european countries are with drawing from benghazi because of the continued threat of terrorist attacks there, no, the major question is and there are many, was why were all of these warnings ignored? >> the secretary of state said she took responsibility and
9:13am
yet she never saw some of the warnings. why not? why wasn't it? when a report from the ambassador saying they can't with stand an attack and already attacks on the british ambassador and consulate, those questions were never answered and that is somebody that they think they can stall long enough, with the help of the adoring media that will all just fade away. some of us don't intend to let it fade away and we'll do everything in our power to get answers. >> news that is made today. fox news learned that the pentagon is threatening to furlough all of its employees if congress is unable to avoid sequestitration. they have 800,000 civilian employees. >> my reaction is i hope members was congress and the president will pay attention to secretary of defense
9:14am
panetta and the chairman of the joint chiefs who are saying that draconian measures will have to be ten. fur lows and lay off in the defense industry and most important to me devastating blow to national security if sequestitration takes place . frankly so far. i have not seen the kind of urgency that many of us feel about sequestitrationn . its implementation. >> this raises big concerns for those employees and what it said about our military right now. >> including our civilian employees of many major defense contractors who will be laid off summarly. >> and another story that i know you are particularly keen on, is that women are going to be allowed to be in combat situation. i know you support this. but many republicans are upset saying it as an opportunity for a social experiment and
9:15am
this is not the time to further that genda- agend a. >> women are in combat begin the nature much war today. the kind of environment in afghanistan, for example where iad's . there is shell rockets and terrorist attacks by suicide bombers and others. but having said that. i believe that the important factor here is that women and men in order to qualify for certain role military have to meet mental and physical standarpeds . as long as that standard is adhered to, i am proud to have qualified women who are serving in combat situations and you know, some people i know think that generally speaking women are smarter than men anyway.
9:16am
>> i can second that definitely. wrapping up quickly. i know you are planing to make news focusing on immigration on monday. can you give insight as to what it is about in >> a group much us have worked for a number of weeks on immigration reform. we'll articulate those principles and we want to work with the white house and house. but bipartisan group of senators will be coming up with a set of the principles. it is very important that we act in coordination with the white house rather than in opposition and with our house colleagues. i believe that we need to enact comprehensive reform . i am pleased to be part of that effort and i know it is not without controversy. >> senator, we look forward to that and it is always great to see you. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> on monday, we'll watch
9:17am
senator mccain and the senators that will announce the specifics of what they would push when it come to overhauling immigration laws. >> protestors are marching on washington, taking their case straight to lawmakers. molly is on the national mall with more. >> organizers say this march grew out of the tragic shoot nothing newtown, connecticut. we are expecting residents in newtown here today. people here want to support president obama and his effort to add more gun control laws to the books. you can see people behind me marching and saying enough is enough. others have signs of the names of people kill would as a result of gun violence. they want more background checks and band on high capacity magazines and ban on assault weapons. >> assault weapons just do nolt need and do not have a place in the hands of civilians and we stopt see
9:18am
responsible gun control. >> we agree for people to have guns with hunting and protection of their homes and assault weapons, i don't see why they are in society. they belong in war. >> the president and senate democrats are pushing for more gun control laws. the senate judd -- judiciary committee will hear on that next week. keep your eye on these democrats as discussions. montana's max vacus . alaska, and arkansas mark prior . largely rural states where guns and hunting are part of the cult and you are they are up for reelection next year. it may depend on how they vote. there was a small pro gun. more gun laws will not keep people with mental health
9:19am
issues from committing violent acts. >> it is not about school shootingings. school shootings can be stopped but not by taking away the arms from legitimate law abidings. >> they heard from arnie duncan who said the time for action on gun control is now. >> molly, thank you very much. this just in to us. democrat senator tom harkin will not seek another term in office. he tells the associated press that it is just time to step aside. harkin's announcement is the latest in a string of retirement. west virginia democrat jay rockefeller announced he will not seek another term as well >> she served three tours of

9:25am
purple heart for injuries you sustained in a meda vac mission in afghanistan. you fueled suit with to lift the ban . now what impact will this have on the armed services? >> the imact is huge. but the main impact that it will have obviously on recruiting. there is a number of well qualified and intelligent woman who walk away when they find out they can't do it. talent drain. we are losing a lot of qualified and experienced enlisted officers because they realize they don't have much much a future despite they were in combat and did jobs as men, they were not holding the same job title . so a lot of those women left. >> there is a huge impact on the culture as it is now . the women in combat it will
9:26am
make life easier to them. it stopped sending the message that they are inferior. >> what about critics who say it is a misguided social experiment? >> i would say there is a lot of things throughout history we have taken steps for progress that are called misguided social experience and they were the right thing to do. i am not saying it is easy and should be implemented immediately but it is not as hard as people are saying. there is a question of putting the strong and the fit and the people who are combat ready in combat. we are not asking for less than that and not asking for guaranteed spot but the opportunity to compete. >> there are concerns women are more vulnerable to sexual assault if they are captured on the battlefield.
9:27am
>> if they are captured on the battlefield and becoming a prisoner of war will experience horrific. men are rape in captivity and i received a significant amount of survival training and resistance and escape. we understand the risks and given tools as much as any human being can be. to try to deal with it it is difficult if you are a prisoner of war. women who make it through the training courses and have the opportunity to serve their country in a way they feel in their heart, they accept those risks and we have to continue to do the training and understand that it is difficult to see any american in that situation. >> sexual assaults are more of a problem in the military's own rankings. 6000 cases have been report last three years alone? >> sexual assault is a huge
9:28am
problem. it is a huge problem and also a problem in the military . there are an increase in numbers, i haven't looked at all . studies. but some of the studies that i looked at and in my own experience there is an increase in number because there is emphasis on reporting. before it was not encouraged to report. you would face problems in your unit because you are treated like a taddle tale. it is encouraged to report. we have people in position specifically there to advise the victims and on top of that it might be a bigger problem in the military because they furthered the view of women as weaker and victims and that increases the culture of women as objects and inferior and that is more of what sexual assault is about. dominance and showing someone you are superior to them. we change the culture and address the behavior from a leadership and discipline perspective it will get
9:29am
better. >> our hats off and thank you for your service and thank you for jour insight. >> thank you so much for having me. >> a new gall up poll is showing over whelming majority of americans approve of women serving in combat. i am read your responses later in the hour. as president obama begins his new term. he is shuffling his administration and that has washington talking. is democratic support for chuck hagel? last two new faces in washington. freshman congress and one republican and one democrat coming your way, next . the boys use capital one venture miles for their annual football trip. that's double miles you can actually use. tragically, their ddy got sacked by blackouts.
